I've always wanted to make a coin consept after I saw the opening title of Jhon Wick. But something a bit different than metal all the way.
I was dabbling with Adobe Firefly and then it struck me while I was working on another project. How bout I use Ai to create a complex image and turn it into a mesh. Well, here we have a coin animation.
The mayan and extraterrestrial mix is what I went for. It's a theme I like. It worked amazing as a combo.
Everything is made in Blender and I used gobos for the lighting to add that extra flair of realism. I used Sanctus materials to cut down a bit of the node wrangling time. Only after creating the enviorenment I got the angle for the shot.
If it was not for the gobos, I would still have been struggling creating the perfect background.
